Out of the Blue Care Package

My husband works rotating shifts at our local cement plant which often means we become passing ships in the night…or day…or afternoon. You get it. We’re passing ships. So when it’s been an especially long period of time between quality time together, I like to surprise him with a little gift, letter, or small care package in his work lunch box. Inspired by the new Extra® 35-stick packs in Spearmint and Polar Ice® I found at my local Walgreens, I went on a hunt for blue packaged snacks I could tuck away into husband’s lunch box for him to discover between breaks during his shift.
A quick jaunt down a few aisles at Walgreens and I located all sorts of blue packaged treats and even an energy drink for my hard working husband. Since I gathered more than I originally anticipated, I also grabbed a blue gift bag. You could also use a box or decorate a plain brown bag with blue stickers and paint.
Back at home, I used a chalk pen to write on the outside of the bag, “A little something out of the blue to show how much we love you!”
Once it was dry, I opened the bag and added all of the blue snacks inside, including thew new 35-stick pack of Extra Polar Ice gum.
I love the new durable, recycled packaging because it can handle the demands of my husband’s physical job without damaging the gum or getting soggy. It’s also a convenient way for him to split and offer a coworker some gum. And as an avid gum chewer, the additional gum in the packaging is an added bonus!
Small expressions of appreciation and love in the form of care packages are one of my favorite ways (and my husband doesn’t hate it, either!) to let my husband know how much he means to our family. Hopefully this easy idea inspires you to Give Extra, Get Extra too!
